Ann Arbor

I have moved to South Lyon, which is about 15 miles north of Ann Arbor in Michigan. It is a small town with the population of about 10,000 according to 2,000 census.

Moving to a new place is not always fun. I have to memorize new roads and adapt to new environments. 

My first day to work was stressful to drive from South Lyon to my office in Ypsilanti. It is about 13 miles drive. The drive is not that bad in good weather. The problem is on snow days when the roads are slippery and wet.

It is also very depressing to be in the Midwestern United States in this gloomy weather with snow storms. It's snowing as of writing this. I now understand the real meaning behind the expression, "sunny and beautiful". Coming from Burma, where "sunny" is not exactly equal to "amazing" or "beautiful", I am just starting to realize how beautiful sunny days are. For me, a sunny day in Burma is just a normal day. On the other side of the world, though, after days of gloomy darkness and snow in the Midwest, the sunny days are really beautiful. It made me want to move to sunshine states like Florida.

Well, that's it for now. Welcome to gloomy and snowy days of mine.
